    I have been working at Bechtel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Even during economic downturns, Bechtel management looks for ways to retain its employees. For example, there may be offices where staff hours are cut but layoffs are minimized. If you are a good performer, management is flexible in moving you to another city or country for personal reasons. There are also many opportunities to switch functions, especially if you are a non-engineer. Opportunities to work overseas for people willing to do so. Compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    Double standard for top managers who don't have to adhere to companies policies of treating others with respect, transparency, etc.

    Advice to Management

    More accountability for senior managers to adhere to corporate covenants.

    Pros

    Too many ways to improve skills, too much to learn and readily available sources of information. Expert consultants / academics working part time or full time and are easily accessible.

    Cons

    Not among the best paying companies compared to its turnover and jobs volume.
